Paper Cup Nesting Dolls

Nesting dolls are easy to make, inexpensive, and not fragile, when you make them out of paper cups! 


I have had a love of nesting dolls from time I was a small girl. I don't know if it was my, "mother instinct," but something about them charmed me from a very young age.

I shared some ideas for making these little cuties easily and inexpensively today on Studio 5.

Do you want to see a little more of my collection pictured above?
These posts are from my early days of blogging (be patient, wink), but here you go:

These are pillows I made for my porch. LINK HERE

I also made one for my mom, with a free pattern! LINK HERE

These are the most favorite dishes I own. LINK HERE with more photos. (Again, early blogging photos, haha.)

As promised on the show today, I am offering free nesting doll printables! I got the adorable Russian Doll clipart from the Etsy shop WinchesterLambourne. I scoured the internet for the most darling dolls, and I do believe I found them! I love the personality they show with their lips and eyes. I added the hearts to the ladies, because it is almost Valentines Day.

Feel free to download to your computer and print (for personal use only). They are sized to 5x7.

Here's the whole spread. I have some more fun kids crafts, and will be breaking down the other projects, including Onion dome cathedral dioramas and easy Faberge eggs next.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a Happy and Creative Day!
